Microcell Telecommunications Inc. has suffered a defeat in its battle with Rogers Wireless Inc. (RWI) and Bell Mobility over unfair and unjust discriminatory marketing practices. On April 28, the CRTC denied the struggling wireless operator’s application seeking a cease and desist order for its two rivals’ activities (Telecom Decision 2003-26). The case stems from a Part VII application Microcell filed in August 2002 alleging that the two larger competitors were luring its customers away in an unjust discriminatory manner (RoW, Sept. 16/02).
